In 2006 Rapid Run Middle School was recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence for Parent and Family Involvement. This recognition is based on the PTA’s National Standards for Family-School Partnerships listed below. We have 100% teacher membership in the RRMS PTA. Our PTA is dedicated to serving each of our students and their families. We encourage all of our parents to join the PTA and to serve as a volunteer. Working together we can ensure that all of our students are achieving at high levels and growing to their full potential.
Standard 1: Welcoming all families into the school community—Families are active participants in the life of the school, and feel welcomed, valued, and connected to each other, to school staff, and to what students are learning and doing in class.
Standard 2: Communicating effectively—Families and school staff engage in regular, two-way, meaningful communication about student learning.
Standard 3: Supporting student success—Families and school staff continuously collaborate to support students’ learning and healthy development both at home and at school, and have regular opportunities to strengthen their knowledge and skills to do so effectively.
Standard 4: Speaking up for every child—Families are empowered to be advocates for their own and other children, to ensure that students are treated fairly and have access to learning opportunities that will support their success.
Standard 5: Sharing power—Families and school staff are equal partners in decisions that affect children and families and together inform, influence, and create policies, practices, and programs.
Standard 6: Collaborating with community—Families and school staff collaborate with community members to connect students, families, and staff to expanded learning opportunities, community services, and civic participation.
